The last intake of new students to this programme will be September 2021. All current and future students studying on the programme will continue their studies at Cardiff University as planned.

Do you have an interest in anaesthetics, surgery and patient care? Join us and study at the only higher education institution in Wales and the only Russell Group University offering a BSc Honours course in Operating Department Practice.

Our programme is accredited by the UK Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Meaning you will be eligible to apply to the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) for registration upon completion and will be able to practice as a registered Operating Department Practitioner.

It’s an exciting, challenging and rewarding career choice which is very unique and practical. Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs) are vital members of a multidisciplinary team. They support patient’s emotional and physical well-being throughout surgery from anaesthetics, through surgery and into recovery.

A career in Operating Department Practice provides opportunities to explore innovation in practice and have the privilege to be part of a team that changes people’s lives. Operating Department Practice offers you the chance to work in a stimulating, sociable and supportive environment working closely with other healthcare professions daily as part of multi-disciplinary teams, patients and their families.

You’ll be taught skills that encompass all three phases of the perioperative journey anaesthetics, surgery and post anaesthetic care. However, although primarily based within the perioperative environment the role can be seen in other areas outside of the operating theatre, where these skills are required or can be adapted to meet other needs.

Our course combines both academic study and clinical placements. Within academic study, not only do you get support from a personal tutor and an innovative team of academics in a close-knit class, you will be supported in our recently refurbished simulation suite to practice and hone your taught skills before going out into practice

Our clinical placements take place throughout Wales; working alongside a dedicated placement mentor, knowledgeable practising professionals and with real patients. Meaning you’ll be more competitive in the employment market throughout Wales and the UK and have a broader insight as to the wide-ranging employment opportunities available to you upon qualification.

After qualifying, most ODPs are primarily based in the operating department, but can also work in areas as diverse as accident and emergency departments, intensive care units, maternity departments and as members of the cardiac arrest team. In fact, anywhere anaesthetic or surgical intervention is required.

Be a part of something special and take on a rewarding challenge that will make a difference to people’s lives.

Cewch ragor o wybdoaeth am y broses ymgeisio yn ein polisïau derbyn myfyrwyr.

Y broses ddethol neu gyfweld

Ni fyddem yn gwneud cynnig heb gyfweliad ac ni fydd unrhyw gynigion yn cael eu gwneud nes bydd yr holl gyfweliadau wedi digwydd.

Rhaid i bob ymgeisydd fodloni'r gofynion sylfaenol ar Lefel 2 (TGAU yn nodweddiadol) a Lefel 3 (Safon Uwch yn nodweddiadol) er mwyn bod yn gymwys i'w hystyried ar gyfer cyfweliad. Os ydych chi'n cwrdd â'r gofynion mynediad lleiaf, bydd eich cais yn rhoi sgôr rifiadol yn seiliedig ar eich datganiad personol. Bydd ymgeiswyr cymwys yn cael eu rhestru yn ôl y sgôr hon a gwahoddir yr ymgeiswyr sydd ar y brig i gyfweld

Ein proses gyfweld

Rydym yn defnyddio'r fformat cyfweliad mini lluosog (MMI), sef cyfres o orsafoedd cyfweld byr, wedi'u hamseru'n ofalus y byddwch chi'n cylchdroi o'u cwmpas yn eu tro.

Mae'r MMIs yn ein helpu i benderfynu a ydych chi:

  • yn gallu meddwl ar eich traed
  • wedi meddwl am rai o'r materion sy'n bwysig i'r proffesiwn
  • yn gallu gwerthuso gwybodaeth yn feirniadol
  • yn gallu cyfleu syniadau yn effeithiol.

Maent hefyd yn canolbwyntio ar archwilio'r rhinweddau a'r priodoleddau personol sy'n bwysig i'ch datblygiad gyrfa yn y dyfodol.

Mae'r cyfweliadau hyn yn caniatáu inni gwrdd â chi'n bersonol ac asesu gwybodaeth nad yw bob amser ar gael yn rhwydd yn y broses ymgeisio - nid ydynt wedi'u bwriadu i brofi faint o wybodaeth flaenorol sydd gennych am y pwnc neu'r proffesiwn.

Ffioedd dysgu

Myfyrwyr o'r DU

Mae bwrsariaeth lawn gan y GIG ar gael ar gyfer y rhaglen hon. Mae’n cynnwys ffioedd dysgu a bwrsariaeth nad yw’n ad-daladwy ar gyfer costau byw, ac mae ar gael i ymgeiswyr 'r DU. Mae manylion llawn, gan gynnwys gwybodaeth i ymgeiswyr o'r UE, ar gael ar ein tudalennau ynghylch cyllid GIG.

Myfyrwyr o'r UE, AEE a'r Swistir

Os ydych chi'n wladolyn o'r UE/AEE neu'r Swistir, oni bai eich bod yn gymwys i gael statws ffioedd y DU, bydd ffioedd dysgu ar gyfer 2021/22 yn unol â'r ffioedd a godir ar fyfyrwyr rhyngwladol. Mae UKCISA wedi darparu gwybodaeth am Brexit a ffioedd dysgu.

Myfyrwyr o weddill y byd (rhyngwladol)

Mae lleoliad GIG yn rhan angenrheidiol o'r cwrs hwn. Mae'r GIG yn trefnu lleoliadau sydd ar gael i fyfyrwyr sy'n gymwys i dalu ffioedd DU yn unig. Felly, nid yw'r cwrs hwn ar gael ar gyfer myfyrwyr rhyngwladol.

Strwythur y cwrs

The Programme takes place over three years of full-time study. It follows a modular framework with each academic year consisting of four modules, representing a single level of learning.  Credits are allocated in accordance with the Cardiff University Credit Accumulation System for Higher Education. A single level is equal to 120 credits and the award of BSc (Hons) Operating Department Practice requires the accumulation of 360 credits. However, Level 4 represents foundation studies with only Levels 5 and 6 contributing towards the final classification of the degree.

The programme is delivered through a modular system that develops the students’ knowledge whilst guiding and supporting them to apply this theoretical knowledge to their clinical practice.

Throughout the programme students will be provided with the tools and knowledge necessary to allow them to develop their academic skills and inquiry. Concepts and principles of critical thinking, research and evaluation are intertwined throughout the programme from the start, providing students with the tools needed for successful completion. Additionally, these skills will help prepare the student for lifelong learning and inquiry in their future practice.

Being part of the School of Healthcare Sciences at Cardiff University, you will get opportunities to study alongside learners from other programmes within the School, including: Occupational Therapy, Diagnostic Radiography and Imaging, Radiotherapy and Oncology, Physiotherapy and Midwifery. Interprofessional education activities will be integrated with ODP modules throughout the three years and provide opportunities to explore personal identity, roles, values and approaches of learners from different disciplines. Interprofessional learning will be delivered using an enquiry-based approach and action learning sets to develop skills to explore areas of practice and learn with and from each other. Learners will be exposed to learning opportunities and work in collaboration with each other to develop and explore their own questions.

The programme will be delivered using a variety of methods. Whole group lectures, interprofessional learning, small group sessions and workshops and clinical skills as well as group work activities. The programme will provide online resources and activities that students are required to undertake. This may take the form of delivering some content via online video which students must watch before attending sessions. This enables us to spend more face to face time discussing issues, covering clinical scenarios and helping students to develop their abilities to link theory to practice.

Independent studies are also an important aspect of the programme. Specific work may be set for these sessions, but students will also be required to identify gaps in their understanding and initially address these in self-study or independent learning sessions. Self-study will initially be directed but students will gradually be encouraged and expected to work independently. Further clarification and explanation can then be sought during tutorial and/or practical sessions. Information to support learning and teaching sessions is presented through the virtual learning environment (VLE) of Learning Central.

Reading lists are provided throughout the Programme via Module Descriptors which are available via Learning Central. You will be given advice about how to make best use of these.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2021/22. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2021

Blwyddyn un

Year one introduces you to the concepts and principles that underpin Operating Department Practice. You will be guided to develop a questioning, reflective approach and to apply this approach in clinical practice. You will study a total of 6 modules in year one and approximately 25 weeks will be spent on placement.

The taught modules in year one total 120 credits. All are core (compulsory).

Blwyddyn dau

In year two you will be encouraged to take a greater responsibility for your own development, demonstrating a greater reflective approach compared to year one. Again, you will study a total of 6 modules and approximately 25 weeks of the year will be spent on placement.

The taught modules in year two total 120 credits. All are core (compulsory).

Blwyddyn tri

Year three enables you to develop as an effective professional, fully prepared for practice in the multi-disciplinary environment of the operating department. A total of 5 modules, including a double credit dissertation project will be undertaken, along with approximately 23 weeks on clinical placement.


The taught modules in year three total 120 credits. All are core (compulsory).

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

The programme has been designed to focus on the integrated relationship between all the subjects and topics with a key focus on application of theory to practice of Operating Department Practice in all modules.

Due to the practical nature of Operating Department Practice, the programme has been structured with 60% of the programme time in clinical practice placements over the 3 years, to enable the integration of theory to clinical practice. You are required to complete a minimum of 2,400 hours in clinical placements over the three years. You will record your practice hours in your practice assessment document for each placement.

Diverse learning and teaching methods are used throughout to reflect module content, students' developing knowledge and growing expertise. All modules have a formalised teaching and learning structure which employ a range of formal lectures and blended learning, tutorials, workshops, practical skills sessions and self-directed learning. A focus on directed self-study enables development of a student-centred approach to learning. Specific work may be set but you will also be required to identify gaps in personal understanding and initially address these in self-study or independent learning sessions.

In keeping with the professional clinical environment, great emphasis is placed on working in a multi-disciplinary team. There are opportunities embedded in all 3 years for shared and inter-professional education and you will have the opportunity to engage with students from a range of other healthcare disciplines.
 

This programme offers elements of provision through the medium of Welsh.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be assigned a personal tutor throughout your studies with whom you will have regular meetings. They will provide pastoral support and academic guidance throughout the duration of your studies. In addition you will be assigned an academic supervisor who will support you in the development of your dissertation. When you are out on practice-based learning in placement you will be assigned to a Practice Educator and mentor who will support you with your practice-based learning.

Our clinical skills suite is accessible via a booking process through the lecturing staff.

Lleoliadau

Students will undertake the required clinical placement learning in all three academic years. Clinical practice accounts for 60% of the total programme time. Clinical placement lengths vary depending on the level of study but each placement is typically between 5 and 7 weeks in length. Placements are usually completed back to back which means that students may complete two placements before returning back to University for further academic input and support.

Students will have the optional opportunity to undertake a four week elective placement during either year 2 or 3 of their programme. There may be an opportunity for this placement to be overseas (at the students own expense).
